Hey, do a google search for "democrats exempt themselves"!

It's not true (that is, it's a lie) but hey, the right wing internets love themselves some 'democrats exempt themselves'! Have a look!

Rapture Ready forum? That's cute. It is more helpful for you to create caricatures of those you disagree with and then filter everything you see, read and hear from them through such caricatures? I mean, I'm sure it's fun and all that.

Maybe. They're certainly going to lose seats in November, whether they lose their majority or not.

But what Republicans fear is that this creates another welfare dependency that Americans will become addicted to, like Social Security and Medicare. They fear that Obama will go down in history with FDR and LBJ as further cementing Americans to the government teat, relegating Republicans to having opposed an untouchable and hugely popular program. They fear taht in 20 years they'll be alternately praising it and accusing Democrats of trying to cut it.

Yes and while that makes wonderful politics, the real problem is that both those programs and on course to eat up the entire Federal Budget and likewise, consume more resources than the entire networth of the United States.

Little details like that aren't important though because the main point is that we will have a bunch of people who are dependent and an impossible political situation and that is awesome!

"As soon as health care passes, the American people will see immediate benefits. The legislation will:

*Prohibit pre-existing condition exclusions for children in all new plans;

*Provide immediate access to insurance for uninsured Americans who are uninsured because of a pre-existing condition through a temporary high-risk pool;

*Prohibit dropping people from coverage when they get sick in all individual plans;

*Lower seniors' prescription drug prices by beginning to close the donut hole;

*Offer tax credits to small businesses to purchase coverage;

*Eliminate lifetime limits and restrictive annual limits on benefits in all plans;

*Require plans to cover an enrollee's dependent children until age 26;

*Require new plans to cover preventive services and immunizations without cost-sharing;

*Ensure consumers have access to an effective internal and external appeals process to appeal new insurance plan decisions;

*Require premium rebates to enrollees from insurers with high administrative expenditures and require public disclosure of the percent of premiums applied to overhead costs."

It just means the free market is working and after all it is a write off. For people who sign checks this is theft, fraud, murder and disruptive to their business.

No, that is not a tax increase. But there will be:

Quote:
So-called "Cadillac" plans costing more than $10,200 a year for individuals or $27,500 for family coverage (not counting dental and vision plans) will be subject to a 40% tax on the portion of the cost that exceeds the limit. Though the tax would actually be paid by insurers, it's expected that it would be passed along to plan holders in the form of higher premiums. The Cadillac tax would be delayed until 2018 and apply only to the most expensive plans under the House bill.

Oh look, this new law looks like it is going to end up costing you another $800 (approximately).

Hey, trumptman and MJ1970.

Here's a list of ten principle changes coming into pretty much immediate effect. Perhaps we could go through them?

Prohibit pre-existing condition exclusions for children in all new plans

Do you think this a change for the better, or not?

Do you think this a change for the better, or not?

Prohibit dropping people from coverage when they get sick in all individual plans

Do you think this a change for the better, or not?

Oh I don't think so. See those trying to put us in the POR house have had their say, now the reality aka the voters will have theirs come November. In the meantime the voters get to start paying today for benefits a minority of them (because 85%+ already have health care and those who don't are often on a temporary basis between jobs) will receive starting four years from now. For the next four years it is all pain, no gain. Plus those nice midterm elections have now been completely nationalized. No escaping this or claiming local issues should prevail now.



The better question is why did it require bribes, threats and arm twisting to secure the votes of their own party. BTW, if I recall correctly, about a dozen states are ready to sue and will move forward on those suits now. It's that "I'm so post partisan that 15% of my party, all of the opposition party and dozens of states now sue" change we all hoped for I guess.



Well the liberal media complex still has several months of calling us all racists, terrorists, and extremists to try to change our minds.

They've already started. Every article I read talked about the pre-vote anger, and how people were using racial and other slurs. Doesn't matter though. They've awakened a sleeping giant.

Aside from the principled position of disliking the use of force to achieve my objectives, I will have reserve judgement on whether these things are a change for the better, or not until they have actually been implemented and we can see what the total effects of them are. See I don't simply accept simplistic proclamations that X will make something better because Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi tell me that will or wish that they will or promise that they will. In the mean time I will be trying to (as I have to this point) thing through what the total effects might be used logic, reason and historical experiences and observations. But you go ahead and keep using wishful thinking.

They will lose some but gain more. HCR reform alone will be much more popular by then. I'd bet opinion polls will show a 65% favorability rating or even more. Massachusetts HCR's are hugely popular too.

Yes, because the claim always defied credibility.

You can't extend coverage to 30-plus million people in a nation that is aging and chronically obese and expect costs to go down. That's worse than the Trickle-Down math the Dems claim to despise.

Many of the advocates of this reform openly admit to want to move the U.S. system closer to the Canadian single-payer system. That's fine, but we pay far higher gasoline taxes, not to mention a federal 5% Value Added Tax on everything we purchase. Claiming that increased coverage will lower costs in today's environment is not credible.

As I have said before, Obama's stimulus-mania and now this health care expansion is not accidental.
The U.S., like Canada before it, is being set up for a Value Added Tax to align the country with the rest of the world economy.

Americans would never willingly vote for such a regressive, big government tax scheme, so they are being forced into bankruptcy to accept it.

Errr, well....the US government already spends much more on healthcare than the Canadian government by a good chunk and businesses and individuals are often severely strained and less competitive for the share they pay too. GM remember spends $1,500 per vehicle they produce just on healthcare costs. The US system pays doctors, especially specialist doctors, much more, it pays about 30% straight to insurance companies for administration and profits etc. Obama is changing the structure of HC in the US so that's it's cheaper, when the public option becomes law especially. The closer the system gets to being single payer (I think that's still a good 15 years a way or so) the cheaper it will become and therefore your taxes conspiracy theory just doesn't hold up. I suppose you could argue that because the plans offered by the insurance companies have to be up to a higher standard than the US is used to, you could argue that that will be payed by higher taxes. But those higher taxes are being minimized not maximized as you would expect if it it were a conspiracy.
